The Arroyo High football team's defense was flawless in the first half, but the Tennyson offense scored 17 unanswered points in the second half to beat the Dons 17-10 on Friday night in a West Alameda County Conference-Shoreline Division game.
The Dons offense got it started in the first quarter, capitalizing on an interception thrown by Tennyson quarterback Gilberto Magallanes with a touchdown.
Malcolm Hale caught a 42-yard pass from Arroyo quarterback Isaac Tapia and, dodging two tackles, ran it into the end zone to get his team on the board.
Carlos Jimenez would add a 29-yard field goal in the second quarter, giving the Dons a 10-0 lead at halftime. But those were the last points they would get.
Tennyson running back Quinzell Moore found his stride in the second half, scoring both rushing touchdowns for the Lancers. He got his team on the board with a 20-yard run in the third quarter and gave them the lead with a 7-yard run in the fourth.
Jacob Brown tied the game in the third quarter on a 30-yard field goal. Tennyson's offense capitalized on Arroyo's mistakes, with their final 10 points coming off red-zone turnovers by the Dons offense.
